Driver Slams Vehicle from Behind on 190 East, LIVINGSTON, March 25, 2014 - At approximately 8:05 am on March 25, 2014, a silver 2006 Chevy Equinox, driven by Christy Jeane, 38, of Shepherd, was east-bound on US-190 East. Jeane stopped to make a left turn into a private drive (near Texas Forest Service). As Jeane was waiting for her chance to turn left (over the west-bound lanes) she was slammed from behind by a black 2009 Dodge Ram driven by Brian Lynn Henderson, 36, of Palestine. Henderson was also west-bound on 190 (behind Christy Jeane) and failed to notice her stopped in front of him. Henderson's truck slammed into the back of Jeane's vehicle spinning her vehicle around. Jeane's vehicle came to rest in the west bound lane of traffic. Henderson's vehicle remained in the east bound lane. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with the Livingston Volunteer Fire Department, Deputies Rey Davalos and Mike Nettles with the Polk County Sheriff's Office and Troopers Chris Cain and Sergeant Nita Bowen (both with the Texas Highway Patrol). Brian Henderson appeared physically okay and refused medical treatment. Christy Jeane sustained undisclosed injuries. Medical personnel removed Jeane from her vehicle and transported her by ambulance to Livingston Memorial Hospital. Traffic was partially blocked on the east and west bound sides of 190 as the accident was being investigated and cleared. According to Trooper Chris Cain, Brian Henderson was cited for failure to control speed. A rollback wrecker from Ken's Towing recovered Henderson's vehicle and it will be stored at Bounds Autoplex in Livingston. Ken's Towing also recovered Jeane's vehicle and it will be stored at Harrison Body Shop in Livingston.
